Product Description:

Turn the whole world into a keyboard. What's MaKey MaKey. Make + Key = MaKey MaKey. MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. An Invention Kit for Everyone. Use your wildest imagination and turn everyday objects into touch pads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners or Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between. That's up to you. First, load up a computer programme or any webpage. Let's say you load up a piano. Then, instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook up the MaKey MaKey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys or let's say you Google for an online Pac man game and draw a joystick with a pencil. You can play Pac man by touching the drawing. Or you could load up face book or Gmail and send a message on a custom-made alphabet-soup keyboard. How Does it Work. Alligator Clip two objects to the MaKey MaKey board. For example, you and an apple. When you touch the apple, you make a connexion, and MaKey MaKey sends the computer a keyboard message. The computer just thinks MaKey MaKey is a regular keyboard (or mouse). Therefore it works with all programmes and web pages, because all programmes and web pages take keyboard and mouse input. Who is MaKey MaKey For. Artists, Kids, Educators, Engineers, Designers, Inventors, Makers. Really it is for everyone. What materials work with MaKey Makey. Any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity will work including Ketchup, Pencil Graphite, Finger Paint, Lemons, etc. Other materials that work great: Plants, Coins, Your Grandma, Silverware, Anything that is Wet, Most Foods, Cats and Dogs, Aluminium Foil, Rain, and hundreds more.

This product contains small parts and is a choking hazard so not suitable for children under 3 years old.
